    What was journalists' association reaction The Association of Journalists of Kosovo is deeply concerned after the threat Vetëvendosje MP, Haki Abazi made towards online media ‘Albanian Post’, and its director, Baton Haxhiu. The open and deliberate threat of MP Abazi towards the journalists is unacceptable and contributes to endangering the safety of our colleagues. What makes it worse is the fact the threat comes from a senior official of the governing party. AJK invites Abazi's party, as well as the state institutions to distance themselves from the threatening language of this MP.
